The fact that it's the big event of the year in Sweden and the non event of the year on the rest of the planet, pretty well says all that there is to say about both the event and the Swedish lifestyle.

This once again shows how BAD the control is on the people they let enter this country. They really don't have a clue who they let in. Pathetic! And very sad for the girl...


Shocking negligence at every stage on behalf of the Swedish authorities.

Surely by now they must have learned some lessons.

Seven quid at my place in the UK including home visit.

Seven euros at my Barbers in Spain.

Always let our lass cut it in Sweden rather than be ripped off.

"Recurring topic. Swedish people aren't extravert, they aren't the kings of humour. So now, unless you find foreigners to hang out with you, you will end up alone. This is the Swedish Theory of Love. "
Absolutely.
Either that or do what Swedes do, seeing as it is rather difficult for many of them to form deep meaningful relationships with another human being. Do as the Swedes do and form a deep meaningful relationship with a dog instead.


Ha ha, nothing much changed I see.
I did once form a great relationship with Golden Retriever, unfortunately the poor sod died and I had to settle for going back to Swedish women.
I recently crossed the Baltic where the women are just as bossy, but very much more interesting. rolleyes.gif

It is an important right to know for the public, if there is a threat from radicale muslims and who they are. All reports in Swedish media only talk about a "Swedish girl" which planned to join IS and was finally arrested in Vienna.

Only when following the Austrian media, then you can find out that the girl is dark skinned and has a Somalian origin.
http://tvthek.orf.at/program/ZIB-1/1203/ZIB-1/11125534

Therefore this is again a person with migration background and with Somalian origin and not an indigenous Swede or European. Somalia is a muslimic country and violence from there can be considered imported.


IMO a persons TRUE Nationality is WITHIN THEIR HEART.

and NOT within whatever passport that they may have obtained for personal advantages or whatever benefits that it can bring them.

Unfortunately in that sense, the censored type of reporting we see now, not only in Sweden but elsewhere in Europe is not only half truth, but also very misleading.

It simply adds yet another layer of protection for those who are not sympathetic or respectful to the cultures,laws and natives of their country of residence.

It is good to see that many more genuine Swedes have finally seen the light with regard to how their kindness and generosity has been taken advantage of for so long, but also very sad to see that it is probably a little too late in the day.

I do not know who is the 'driving force' behind this new attitude, but it does seem that the loony left are there complaining that it is too much. Could it be that the welder is being influenced by those less liberal for a change?

But as I mentioned in an earlier posting, he is shutting the stable door long after the horse has bolted.


Sadly that is the case.
Sweden has been driving the wrong way down a one way street for far too long due to it's liberal wooly minded ingrained political attitudes and the consequences were inevitable.

Where to from here ?
I haven't a clue, but the future certainly does not look good.

Well madman Putins thugs have already downed one airliner full of innocent civilians killing all on board, so who can say they didn't have a hand in the other two ?
At least it's slightly more credible than fords scenario.

Thats on top of the shocking atrocity in Moscow this last week plus the on going invasion of an independent country and on going threats to independent countries in N. Europe.
Whatever faint hope the Russians may still have had of ever living in a peace loving democratic society blown away for many years to come.

All very sad.

Every country has it's shortcomings, good points, bad points etc. and most but not all, have forums where such things are openly discussed in a mature fashion without childish posters spitting their dummies over every negative aspect brought to light, ...just a big shame it is not allowed to happen here.

It is nothing to do with hatred, It is simply a wish for open minded mature discussion regarding the pros and cons of the country and it's people.
I often wonder why there is so much resistance and negative reaction to such discussions here, insecurity, immaturity, wounded pride who knows ?

Sweden and it's people have very obviously over the years tried to cultivate an impression of a modern society where everything in the garden is rosy.
Unfortunately the veneer has long ago worn off and in today's world of international social networks and communications the truth has inevitably become very obvious for the whole world and his wife to see.

Hey Jack!

You are back!!!

We all know you for what you are...your banal, trite and totally inaccurate postings concerning the Swedish people and their wonderful culture...are the result of your failure as a human being (I'm being generous here) to accept and adapt to anything that is even slightly different...is so far beyond your ken as to be considered as from an alien culture many light years from this orb...

You just can't "hack it"...in real life!!!

Your recent delusions can only be caused by your Swedish wife who has again denied your sharing of her marital bed...You are relegated to the dog house...And so in deep delusionment and loss of understanding of the realities of life...you again...in your hour of humilitation take your revenge because of the woeful lack of any kind of masculinity on your part...by again posting here... and not kindly to the warm, friendly and loving Swedish peoples...

My dearest Jack...when you are allowed back in the house please consider that you need to be a bit more understanding of anything that will get you thrown out AGAIN...

Fondly,
GH


Still scraping the bottom of the barrel with personal insults again I see.

As per usual, your normal tactics when you can't face facts and are yet again unable to give a coherent response.

Just to correct your usual misconceptions I've never had or particularly wanted a Swedish wife though I've had my fair share of Swedish ladies for company and still have an excellent relationship with one in particular, though at the moment I must confess that my current flavour of the month is just over the water from you in Estonia.

Please try and grow up a little as your recent replies to me only serve to discredit not only yourself but the forum in general, so hopefully you'll give that a little thought before letting yourself down so badly again with such childlike nonsense which you know full well is simply a figment of your imagination.

To get back to the point in question, are "Swedes socially retarded", well in general it certainly appears so and I think plenty of examples have been demonstrated on this forum alone to prove the point, eh what G.H ?

You describe Swedes as friendly warm and loving people, well maybe so in many cases, but as has been pointed out unfortunately they have great difficulty in creating that impression due to their mainly introvert self serving attitude.
For that reason it is little wonder that they often appear to outsiders as a bloody miserable lot to put it mildly.

I spend much of my time in Spain these days and as is common knowledge Spain is deep in the mire and has been for quite a long time with shocking unemployment levels and many folk on the breadline.
Yet despite all that I find them still to be upbeat cheerful generous friendly and extremely sociable, still more often than not with a joke and a smile.
It is little wonder my Swedish guests in Spain are finally able to come out of their shells for the first time in their lives and join in the fun, though sadly I note it usually only takes a short spell back in their home country to return back to their sad sheltered lives and status quo once again.
Big shame. Maybe it will take another twenty generations to become enlightened, but there again they may all be speaking Arabic by then and enjoying all the wonderful joys of Sharia law.

Hmm, typical toys out the pram reaction. If you don't like our country then P... off.
Well actually I did, quite a while back, but having said that I still spend time there having both personnel and business connections.

Every country has its idiosyncrasies, though most I know tend to be a bit more sociable and much less likely to be so outraged when such things are discussed or aired in a reasonable manner.

Most mature and well travelled Swedes I know have come to understand this and fortunately are able to openly discuss the various pros and cons without taking offence, however there are still quite a few living in their own tiny over cultivated fantasy world who still prefer to believe that everything in Sweden's garden is just fine and beyond reproach when it is so obviously no more the case than in any other country.

All these weird things i experienced from the natives:

1. They charge money just to have dinner at their place when they invite you for a social evening.

2. When they don't charge money, they offer very little including a glass of water.

3. They don't reply to invitations until last minute.

4. They won't come if nobody speaks swedish at a social gathering.

5. Don't say a word except calling kids when collecting kids at a kids party.

Anybody wants to add?

Truly bizarre behaviour..


Weird, they certainly are, socially retarded or socially immature possibly.

They always roll up in big numbers to take advantage of a free nosh-up, but tend to be very slow to reciprocate.

I finally put the block on them after the last two occasions when their kids seemed to think it was their born right to half inch anything in the house they could lay their grubby mitts on and rather than right their wrongs and straighten them out, the parents won't hear tell of it and continue to think the Sun shines out of their arses.
I know some teachers quite well and they report much the same problem with both kids and parents, so much so that one I know well took early retirement.

One of the most weird things I see is when they go out together in a group and yet all stand separately in a queue to pay in turn only for their own tiny drink with a credit card of course. Drives the poor bar staff crazy and never a single word of please or thanks of course. Taking turns to buy a round never seems to enter their tiny minds or more likely they are terrified that they end up paying for more than their own share.
Yes the more I think about it, the more I realise just how socially retarded they really are.

Hardly surprising that Obama would be willing to set up Putin's murder.


Now there's a pleasant thought.

Putin is easily the lowest life form on the planet, obviously taking over where Stalin left off.

He's proved it in Chechnya, virtually wiping a country and it's people off the face of the map.

He's proved it in his sadistic actions against his own people and now it proved yet again with blood on his hands regarding his involvement in the callous downing of MH17 and pathetic attempts at a cover up.

One step to far for the evil scumbag this time methinks, looking at the resultant widespread worldwide condemnation.

Hopefully the day will come when he shall reap what he has sown.

Can someone give me some tips on how to approach a Swede, dating norms and expectations, and what Swedish girls are looking for? Tack!


Swedish girls much prefer Americans, Aussies and Brits to most other nationalities and also fellow Swedes.

Suggest you cultivate a Texas accent and tell them about your 10,000 acre ranch and private jet.

They're as rare as hen's teeth in my experience,

MOST ESPECIALLY if there is any bother.

They're usually to be found tucked up in their cosy little offices, stuffing their faces with take-aways and making friends with some stray hound that some kindly person dropped in to keep them company.

Hello,

I am a 21 year old British woman and I am in search of a Nordid guy to give me a baby. I do require this man, whoever you are, to be physically fit and tall, with a typical 'Viking face' and by that I mean high cheekbones and chiseled jawline. I'm thinking along the lines of a typical handsome looking masculine male. Height is a must and therefore, you must be over 6'2 to qualify. You must also be intelligent but this is not as important as the physical attributes and can be comprised if you look like a Swedish male model.

I do not want children with an ordinary English man. What would be the point when I can have children from a stronger and better looking Nordid man, who will ensure my children are physically healthy and strong. I love Scandinavia and its people and I want my children to be apart of it. Because I am quite an average and short British girl, I really need a strong and powerful physically fit and attractive Viking to give me my children.

If you are interested, please respond and we can talk.

Thank you!


Suggest you try your next door neighbour back in Blighty.

All the true big brave Vikings left Sweden long ago to live in much nicer places such as the UK.

No real Viking blood left in Sweden I'm afraid,

...only a bunch of weak kneed Nancy boys who spend most of their lives hiding under their women's skirts.
